Murray Resources President Named Finalist For Woman Business Owner of the Year Award


HOUSTON (October 23, 2007) – Marsha Murray, President of Houston staffing firm Murray Resources, Ltd., was recently recognized as one of eight finalists for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Houston Chapter Woman Business Owner of the Year Award.

The association recognized Murray for her ability to excel the growth of her business while promoting good community relations and supporting other woman-owned businesses.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized as a finalist for this award,” Murray said. “The opportunities and support of other women business owners provided through organizations such as NAWBO have been instrumental to the successful growth of my business as well as the growth of myself as a business owner.”

Founded as a home-based business in 1988, Murray has grown her 100 percent woman-owned business leaps and bounds. Focusing on the quality of candidate placement rather than the quantity of placements, Murray has developed the firm to have a client base of more than 750 clients and 3,000 candidates on its roster today. The firm has earned a hard-won reputation among its client base for providing the most successful client matches than other competing firms – receiving a 95% match satisfaction rate versus an industry rate that falls somewhere in the 50-60% range.

Murray has made a tremendous impact on the community through the creation of new jobs and community service. She is also a devoted advocate of organizations that support women in business, serving on many of these organizations’ as well as other non-profits’ boards.
